's that kind of symbol that a terrorist would look at. and also it's tax day. it's april 15th. and if it's a domestic type of terrorist that hates their government and wants to rebell against it, that's also a symbol as well. i think we'll follow the evidence the way law enforcement people do, being a former da, you only know what you know. and they're sorting those things out. i can tell you this, that the fusion center here where the federal law enforcement people work with the state law enforcement people and the local is one of the finest in the whole country. it's rated that way. and so there's though question in my mind that that group added with the assets of the entire country right now, that the president is calling on, will bring the person responsible to justice. there's that level of confidence right thousand. but it's hard to even go there when you're sitting there, that people that you know, and people that know other people have been injured thin this. three have already lost their lives. it's hard to get past that, but the professionals who are doing their are doing that
at is the location, boston marathon the date on tax day, on patriots day, four or five days before the anniversary of waco. these are all images and symbols that investigators are sifting through to see if that had anything to do with the message that was put here with these two bombs at the boston marathon. they can't rule out overseas, foreign terrorism and they looking at all of that trying to determine who was behind this and why. >> shep: you might have thought in the moments after this bombing that when these pressure cookers exploded they would have exploded in a lot of pieces. what these pictures seem to indicate, very large pieces held together. we see numbers identifying marks. we see materials that are clearly, according to your sources, the materials that held this bomb as it sat either in a trash can or side 56 curb. these are very valuable pieces of evidence which i'm getting will be iconic pieces. i'm getting there are reporters all over boston are wondering how in atlanta came across this? >> i would love to tell you, shepard, i think we'll have to have that conversation off air. >
that have runners here. it's that kind of symbol a terrorist would look at and also it's tax day. it's april 15th. and if it's a domestic type of terrorist that hates their government and wants to rebel against it, that's also a symbol as well. i think that we'll follow the evidence the way law enforcement people do. being a former d.a., that's -- you only know what you know. and they're sorting those things out. i can tell you this, that the fusion center here, where the federal law enforcement people work with the state law enforcement people, and the local is one of the finest in the whole country. it's rated that way. so there's no question in my mind that that group added the assets of the entire country right now, that the president is calling on, will bring the person responsible to justice. it's that level of confidence right now. but it's hard to even go there when you're sitting there, you know, people that you know, people that know other people, have been injured in this, and this terrible incident, three have already lost their lives. >> yeah. >> it's hard to get past that now,
-earned tax dollars to go after waste, fraud and abuse, i introduce h.r. 1502 -- listen up -- the social security disability insurance and unemployment benefits double-dip elimination act of 2013. this bill would stop people from receiving disability at the same time they are receiving unemployment. under current law, a person can receive both disability and unemployment at the same time. this isn't right. just doesn't make sense. i don't know how someone can be able and available to work and also be unable to work because of a disability. i urge my colleagues to support this commonsense bill in order to help make sure the disability program is there for those who truly cannot work. president obama also included a similar proposal in his budget, and i look forward to working with the administration to get this bill signed into law. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from california rise? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman i
happened in waco. one more quick note about the timing. yesterday was tax day for everyone in this country but here in boston it was patriots day which commemorates the battles of lexington and concord, the start of the u.s. revolutionary war. big day not only for the country but boston. >> what was supposed to be a celebration turned out differently. let's go back to new york and savannah. >> matt on monday evening president obama spoke about this tragedy offering his thoughts and prayers to the city and vowing justice to those involved. i happened to sit down with him shortly before these explosions and we talked about a number of things in the headlines. we began with the gun legislation before congress that many say is now hanging by a thread. >> i think we've got a good chance of seeing it pass if members of congress are listening to the american people so let's just take the example of background checks. 90% of americans think that we should make it tougher for criminals or people with serious mental illnesses to obtain a gun, and so the notion that congress would defy the overwhelmi
to help that i mean, this is a marathon. it is a taxing event anyway. they have got medical personnel right there at scene because so many runners are just absolutely maxed out when they cross the finish line. >> exactly. as we do here in new york city, we have medical tents set up, a lot of them at the finish line. it was great the doctors and first-responders were there to help administer care. the problem is they're not set up for an explosion or disaster of this sort but definitely helps to have the medical care present. jon: you say one of the things people should be alert for in the weeks and months, years to come is ptsd, posttraumaic stress disorder. >> yes. after a event like this which is horrific in nature, it also stirs deep emotions in lots of people. people will become depressed and many will suffer recurrent nightmares and visions of this type of trauma if they were actually there and witnessed it. we have to be alert for that occurring in both adults and children. anybody who was witness to this is subject to that it is something we have to keep a close watch on becaus
